Whole Story

Back in 2000, 20th Century Fox essentially kickstarted the modern comic book movie age with Bryan Singer‘s X-Men, and nearly two decades later, they seem primed to redefine the genre once more with their highly ambitious R-rated superhero adventures, which so far, have paid off tenfold.

The decision to utilize IMAX for one week only also paid off huge dividends as the film collected over $20.6 million worldwide from the premium format screens, which is the second-highest opening weekend ever for an R-rated film in IMAX, behind last year’s Deadpool.

Internationally, Logan finished #1 in 80 of 81 markets, pulling in $46.3 million from China, $11.4 million from the United Kingdom, $8.2 million from South Korea, $8.17 million from Brazil, and $7.1 million from Russia. Its total worldwide collection makes it Fox’s third-biggest opening ever overseas, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past and Avatar.
